Students at Red Mill Elementary School received hands-on lessons from real scientists last week as a group of Regneron employees volunteered in fourth and fifth grade classrooms.

Students made chromatography flowers and lava lamps and watched the Regeneron employees turn household items into a battery.

“Science is all around you,” Red Mill fourth grade teacher Misty Hayes told the students. “It’s a matter of asking questions and trying to find the answers.”

Regeneron’s scientists, which have a lab in Rensselaer, visited as part of the company’s community service day.
